If we had to pick one Photoshop Action Set that we use every single day, it would hands-down be our Photoshop Workflow Skin and Tone Action set. No photo with a close-up should go out of your studio without it! Evens out skin tone, banishes dark eye shadows, brightens eyes and removes ruddy skin tones on everyone from newborns to grandma. Simply play the action on your image and brush on the effect with your opacity brush and flatten. We’ve also thrown in Twig & Olive’s favorite tonal enhancements and our finishing actions should you need a few more tweaks. You can use this set on its own or have it work alongside our other Photoshop and Photoshop CC actions, as well as with our Lightroom Presets. As with all of our actions, these work best on images taken in open shade or during golden hour.
This set includes:
- (5) Skin Repair and Enhancement Actions
- (3) Background Altering Actions
- (2) Tonal Actions
- (5) Finishing Actions
Compatibility and Instructions
This product is compatible with Adobe Photoshop CS6 (and likely CS5 but untested) and all versions of Adobe Photoshop CC. This product is not intended for use with Adobe Photoshop Elements, Adobe Lightroom CC, Adobe Lightroom Classic CC or Adobe Lightroom Mobile.
Because “one-click actions” don’t truly exist, before you apply the effect you must adjust your basic levels (such as exposure, contrast, warmth, shadows, and highlights) to your desired endpoint. After you run the action of your choosing, you can adjust the opacity on each layer to your personal taste, flatten, and you’re done! It’s essential to get your lighting done correctly in-camera as that cannot truly be fixed in editing.
Actions are only a small part of final image production. Time of day, gearing choices, lenses, angles, and depth of field will all have a much more profound effect on your images as opposed to any action. Consider these if you’re unhappy with the results of your edit.
